Idiot with a "power saw"

I wish my saw mechanics were that good. I know nothing about hop'n up saws, or timing them once hopped up! With the exception of bolt on aftermarket components. I have to pay to have mine modified! I just do simple routine maintenance. Some of you guys really now how to get old worn out saws and even newer tired saws fresh again! Good on all you guys!Today was a day off, I briefly thought about attacking the wood pile, but decided that it was more prudent to finish a saw that's been in my shop for a couple of weeks. It was a stock 440, the top end actually had pretty low hours...despite what the massive carbon build up might suggest...I'm guessing it was either run rich or with Stihl brand oil.
Anyway, squish cut, cylinder decked, ported, muffler modded, timing advanced. I need a right angle cutter for the transfers...I'm able to get in the uppers, just not as clean as I'd like.
The owner should really be stoked, it's a strong running 440...it pulls really well in the cut, yet has some decent chain speed.
